BluBoy: Daily - Suicide by bluBoyComics BluBoy: Daily - Suicide by bluBoyComics
TITLE: A Daily Reflection - The Suicide Spirit
*****************************************************
COMMENTARY:


This subject matter is an obvious topic to make its way into the BluBoy series and was only a matter time before it showed up...

I happened to be at a cemetery when this strip idea came to mind, not the character.
My wife has been talking to me recently about an individual she knew growing up that has committed suicide. She just happened to stumble upon this persons grave in this cemetery. She later found out more about this persons death. I don't know all the details but it was bad. Normally I feel such pity for those I read about who take their own lives. Such a sad state of mind. But this story shocked me a little further. And also reminded me about those high school shootings. It made me think about what this spirit would be like, and what if they ran into Blu...

Some spirits in Blu's universe are simply too messed up for even BluBoy to tame. Suicide is not an evil spirit, but sits on the boarder of good and evil, which is why he is grey. Suicide not matter what or how it happens, the person causes enormous hurt to all those around. Even in the spirit world...Oh BTW, Blu doesn't know he's dead, for those who are new to Blu. :aww:

Sorry if this really harsh, I don't mean it to be. Just maybe an eye opener... as with most of my comics...

SOUNDTRACK:

Skinny Puppy - Testure
This song comes to mind for this strip. Its more about vivisection of monkeys and animals from their perspective.

If I had succeeded, I'd be a really tortured and sad version of this ghost. I'm glad I didn't tho. :D

Yeah, the people who are crazy enough to take other people out with them... they're beyond scary. I think you've captured that perfectly.

Hmm, that is interesting... I see what you are saying totally....

I think it's the writing, I don't go over the top in the way I draw the characters too, but I think it's the stories we all can relate too. They're not just ghost stories... you know what I mean? You can easily picture yourself in these situations...

I try to bring a reality to the stories... :aww:

Cool thanks Cally. Yeah, I know. Wasn't sure the reaction I'd get. But it's what it's all about, tortured souls and the relationships between them. From Blu's perspective mainly. And this is a big part of death and life, which ever side you want to look at it...
